The assasination by Jihadistic terrorists of the American ambassador to Libya and three other civilians, could and should have been prevented if Obama's administration secured all the necessary protection that should have been in place, knowing that Benghazi has become a hornest's nest of Al-Qaeda and its heavily weaponized sympathizers. For Obama to continue blaming a movie trailer on the internet for the murder after its been proven by his own intelligence director, that the attack was indeed pre-planned and well coordinated, does not augur well for the American people, the majority of which still continue believing in his leadership skills.
Failure of leadership....that leads to the death of 4 people?.. Now that's what I would call an impeachable offense
Can't find a politician out there who isn't half criminal before he takes office. What can you do!
It might be useful to understand what Chris Stevens was doing there in Benghazi -- in a outpost consulate, not an embassy. Understand what his mission was and how he chose to fulfill it, understanding the potential as well as accepting the risks.
Here's a potent quote from the article I've linked to:
"If he were still alive, Stevens would understand that cowering inside the embassy has the potential to make Libya more, not less, dangerous for U.S. personnel."
You are still free, of course, to demand President Obama's head on a pike.
But the situation is more complex, more nuanced, and less black and white, right or wrong, than that.

There are a lot of unanswered questions about what happened before, during, after the terrorist attack on that consulate. Answers that are not forthcoming from Obama's White House or Hilary's State Dept. They are in full cover-up mode now. Obama covering for the fact that his idea of a successful foreign policy is the killing of BinLaden and with that killing his idea the the war on terror is no longer his concern, thus, even as the consulate is still smoldering, he dicided to go to Las Vegas for a campaign stint....thus his continued insistence that the attack was due to a spontaneous mob reaction to movie trailer on the internet, Hilary is culpable as well since it was on her watch as Sec. of State that an ambassador was assasinated.
Covering up for sins of omission and comission are what led to Nixon's resignation and Bill Clinton's impeachment by Congress(but not by the Senate)
